Great with dinner and a good choice if you’re tired of the normal Mexican beer fare

It poured a nice straw colored body with vivid carbonation. The head alomost instantly faded away but I had the time to see it was airy and bright. The nose offers baked bread, sweet corn and a subtle yeast. I found the aroma appealing but a bit too subtle. You get the bread on the tongue with a decent sweetness, all that paired with a good hoppy presence allowing it to have depth. I thought this brew was simple, light and refreshing and was crisp and lightly acidic. It felt light and just a bit oily. Not too skunky (it does come in a clear bottle after all), it needs to be served as fresh as possible or it will throw a ton of off-flavours. A nice summer beer my dad’s girlfriend brought her recent trip to Mexico.

Not bad. Like high class corona. Drinkable, refreshing. You get about what you would expect with this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle in Rait’s Café, Saltburn. Pours golden with some rapidly fading white froth. Light in flavour. Just some light citrus and spice. Bland and watery.

Can in tulum mexico. Clear yellow. Typical lager type aroma and taste. A bit of a sand taste but might be from the beach, and might be improving flavor actually. Does have some slight malt flavor. Good when cold, I suppose.

Tapp på LAX. Ljust gulbrun. Svag doft av kemisk citrus. Vattnig med lite sötma och beska.

Appearance: it has a clear golden color with medium carbonatation. Aroma: smells like corn and some honey. Tastes like the aroma. I would not drink this beer again.

Bottle@chiquitos, wednesfield. Orange yellow beer with no head and moderate carbonation. Aroma of sweetcorn and some floral notes. Taste is same with a touch of hop bitterness. Overall quite crap really.

At a resort in Mexico. Drinkable but unexciting lager. Hay aroma, grassy taste, dry finish.

"better than corona, but that’s not exactly high praise. tastes of cereal and corn...a little malt. pretty boring, and can be a little skunky. clear glass sucks...why is it still used?"

Nice light honey Amber pour with no head. Nose is a light grain bill, corn and simple crackery malts. Some honey and floral notes. Light drinkable body with just a hint of a bite on the end. Average carb. Taste is a doughy malt profile with some light grains (corn and cereal grains) some light honey and floral notes. Simple drinkable lager
